Manitou Springs old town is just 30 Miles from our C.G,10 years ago we visited this part of the country and liked it very much .
We have this “game” between us –where would we live in the US if we decided to move? and we both agreed that one of the places would be Colorado because it’s central location, the nature and the different activities in different seasons.
To day we drove at first around and through the mountains in the area,and were fascinated by the rock colors,the snow on top of the high places and the beautiful houses .
Then we took a stroll in the old part of Manitou Springs ,enjoying the main drag,the beautiful small shops,restaurants and bars,
The town is surrounded by mountains which give the place a very special atmosphere.
As we were walking it started to rain but this did not stop us from having a taste from the local brewery,and as we did not know what to have to decided to taste them all…and it was gooood.
